CLASSIC CHILDREN’S BOOK THEME BIRTHDAY PARTY

IMG_5424

For my son’s first birthday party I created a theme centered around a collection of everyone’s favorite childhood books. 

All the food was inspired from children’s classic books ranging from Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, see recipe here, and Green Deviled Eggs (Green Eggs & Ham), Meatballs, see recipe here, (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), Pasta Salad (Strega Nona), Veggies (Runaway Bunny), Watermelon (Eating the Alphabet; Fruits & Vegetables from A to Z), and Goldfish Crackers (One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish).

Each table was centered around its own book theme.  I found Cat in the Hat party hats, see here, which  were a hit with the kids.  On the Corduroy table we had a game to guess the number of buttons in Corduroy’s jar and a quiz on each table to test guests memory from classic children’s books.

The cake consisted of a small red cake and many multi-colored green cupcakes in the shape of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Many people asked me after the party, “did he really eat the cake.?”  YES, of course he ate the cake!!  He is my son!
